Think Plastic Brazil (portfolio of solutions to support the converted plastic products industry in the internationalization process for target markets), created by the INP (National Plastics Institute) in partnership with ApexBrasil (Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency), has confirmed the date and venue for the 2nd World Plastic Connection Summit, the most important international event in the Brazilian converted plastics sector for business and knowledge renewal. The Summit will be held in a hybrid format (face to face and online) at the Blue Tree Premium Alphaville, on November 7-10, with simultaneous transmission in Portuguese, Spanish, and English.
In the 2021 edition, the event recorded over 13,000 hits from 54 countries, with 130 participating Brazilian companies and globally renowned speakers, such as Alexandre Herchcovitch, Paulo de Mattos Coelho (Braskem), Karim Rashid, Sally Dominguez, Rosana Orlandi (Guiltless Plastic), Peter Gianetti (IHA), and Priya Nagrale (Market Study Research). The main innovations this year are the new award category (World Plastic Global Design Award) and the implementation of a Buyer and Image Project with large global buying networks.
“In addition to the actions designed to promote business and the renewal of knowledge, the Summit will be a moment of interaction between the main exporters of the Brazilian converted plastics sector, allowing the exchange of experiences and the growth of the market as a whole. The presence of major domestic and international names at the Seminar, the recognition of the internationalization efforts in the Award, the possibility of good deals with the Buyer e Image Projects, and the expected launches of the Yearbook 2022 and Color Trend 2022 confirm the greatness of both Think Plastic Brazil and of our industries,” said Carlos Moreira, Strategy and Project Planning Manager at Think Plastic Brazil.
